i'm just curious what you guys think about this stuff. i was watching a hidden camera show on one of the spanish TV stations in houston last week and as bad as i think the ones we have on regular US television are, this was just unreal. they let the situation go for so long without letting the poor guy in on it that he actually started physically fighting with one of the other people. i kept trying to make out at least some little bits of what they were saying but there were so many people all yelling at each other at once i couldn't really figure it out. i just kept sitting there going "tell the guy already you crazy freaks!! you're gonna get the piss beaten out of you!" i just don't really think it's worth the risk involved. and i'm sure some of the stuff is staged, but other times it clearly isn't... and you never know how people are going to react. i admit, sometimes i think they're funny, but mostly only when they thoroughly confuse someone or something. when they seriously upset people (like by telling them their wedding dress has been ruined only hours before their wedding, or accusing them of sexual harrassment and then pretending to fire them, etc.) that's just not funny to me. that's plain mean. maybe i feel that way cause i'm already an incredibly anxious person and something like that could really mess me up. :? how do you think you'd react if you were ever duped by one of those shows? do you think you'd get mad about it after the fact or do you think you could shrug it off and laugh along with everyone else?
